Designed by noted architect, artist & illustrator Frederick Monhoff, this dreamy 1920s residence in Los Feliz offers a private respite from the city blocks from everything the Village provides.
From the street, the house stands on a knoll behind a bed of mature landscaping, foliage-covered gates, and a walled entryway.
Inside, the previously updated three-bedroom, 1.75-bath home pays remarkable homage to indoor-outdoor California-style living. Built around a central courtyard, everything from the dramatic living room with soaring detailed ceilings to the primary bedroom and an enclosed breezeway connecting the public and private areas opens to the outdoors.
Noteworthy features include a geometric-style fireplace in the living room, a wood-burning fireplace in the courtyard, an outdoor shower and lily pond, Carrara marble in the kitchen and bathrooms, french doors, and ebonized hardwood floors.
And, while you’re in your private world, you’re not too far from Trader Joe’s, Gelsons, and favored neighborhood spots like Little Dom’s.
This Art Deco residence last sold in 2004 for $969,000. It’s now listed by Courtney Smith & Rosemary Portillo, seeking $1.649 million.
